But critics of the Federal Government will spend $837 million The Prime Minister on a new training package aimed at tackling the skills crisis. The Government plans to hand out study vouchers worth $3,000 a piece so that workers who left school early can upgrade their literacy, numeracy and vocational skills. It will be redeemable in either a TAFE institution or a private institution, we want to give flexibility. Some members of the Coalition reckon the Government deserves a pat on the back. No matter what we do we're always going to be in the wrong. When we do something, why don't you applaud it? APPLAUSE But there are plenty of critics out there. This is a small step down the road to addressing that skills crisis.

John Howard is not the man to fix it, I am. The idea of a voucher is really quite bizarre. The Prime Minister accused of ignoring the warning signs. He's been told time and time again the economy needs to be made more sophisticated. We need more funding for universities, for research and design, for training. He hasn't done it and now we have a skills crisis. His failure on skills and trades has created those bottlenecks in the Australian economy which have placed upward pressure on interest rates. It's not too late - the old adage 'better late than never' - even if it is late. The Government skills package is targeted primarily at Australians already in the workforce with 30,000 available each year for workers over 25. The Prime Minister also wants to provide vouchers to the unemployed and parents looking to get back into the workforce. The Government says the skills package isn't a quick fix and there'll still be a demand for skilled foreign workers.

A 12km white banner will be rolled out across the Indonesian resort island of Bali today as a sign of peace to mark the fourth anniversary of the first terror attacks. 88 Australians were among 202 people killed when terrorists bombed the Kuta nightclub district in 2002. Memorials are being held across the country. Almost 100 people gathered for Perth's annual dawn tribute, laying flowers in memory of the 88 Australians killed. While tears were shed, survivors were also celebrating their lucky escapes from the nightclub attacks. But there was widespread disappointment the Premier did not attend. Geoff Gallop made a personal effort each year to come down here and in my view, very disappointed no-one from the Government bothered to turn up. A Government representative is expected to lay a wreath later today. One of the Australians to barely escape with his life was Peter Hughes and he joins me now.

around 6:00 this morning. Firefighters battled for more than an hour to get the blaze under control. The remains of the shop smouldered for another two hours. Emergency services were forced to block off one of the city's main arterial roads as nearby homes and businesses were blanketed in soot and ash. Investigators are yet to determine if the fire was deliberately lit. President George W. Bush is stepping up his war of words with North Korea. He's pledged to bolster ballistic missile defences in the region and increase efforts to stop Pyongyang from importing nuclear technology. remains committed to diplomacy. The United States also reserves all options to defend our friends and our interests in the region against the threats from North Korea.

So far, President Bush has refused to hold one-to-one talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il despite calls from the United Nations to do so. Five people have been killed and a dozen more injured when two trains collided in northern France. It's not clear what caused the accident, but maintenance work was going on at the time of the crash. This, what's left of the front carriages of the two trains. Twisted and locked together where they collided in north-eastern France.

There've been conflicting reports about the death toll but it's clear at least five people have died and at least half a dozen more were injured. The passenger train had crossed the French border from Luxembourg just before midday but on the same stretch of track, there's a French freight train heading in the other direction. Maintenance work had shut down another line and correct signalling should've prevented today's tragedy. and Luxembourg were on the scene Emergency teams from France

helping those who did survive suffering whip-lash and shock. The collision was head-on. Both train drivers didn't stand a chance. For France, which has a good rail safety record, today's events are a body blow. A full investigation is now under way into exactly why this all happened. A red-faced fireman, who was filmed spinning in a tumble dryer, has faced the media to apologise. The young British emergency worker sparked outrage when his childish antics were broadcast around the world on the Internet. Andy Bruce tucked himself inside a tumble dryer for fun. Three colleagues shouted encouragement as they filmed the stunt on the mobile phone but none of them realised the trouble it would cause. The footage captured the fireman being shut inside the machine and then, once it was turned on spinning around. Fire service managers found out about the prank. The firemen involved were disciplined. Today they looked sheepish as they appeared in front of the cameras to apologise publicly. We recognise that our behaviour was totally irresponsible and are genuinely ashamed and stress that nobody should try to copy this stupid act. Managers said

the firemen had abused their position as role models for children. I've spent 39 years in the fire rescue service and I don't think I'm seeing an act that's damaged the reputation of a service so badly. They'd come within a cat's whisker of being dismissed. The film footage gained the firemen national attention. Now, they say, they want to put it behind them and get back to work. You've heard of deep-fried Mars bars, now prepare your taste buds for deep-fried Coke. That's right, you're looking at deep-fried Coca Cola. Bakers at a state fair in North Carolina State mixed coke with batter then poured it into a deep fryer and cooked it into a mass of doughy strands. As if that wasn't unhealthy enough the unusual concoction was drowned in sugar and served with a big dollop of cream and a cherry on top. Bad news for home owners with interest rates set to rise - the new boss of the Reserve Bank tells us why next. And later in Angela Bishop's entertainment report - Paul Hogan sets the record straight

about those damaging tax evasion claims.

This program is captioned live. Rival gangs are being blamed for a wild dance party brawl

at a Sydney university.

Angry teens spilled onto surrounding streets. A number arrested as out-numbered police made desperate calls for help. And the RSL has withdrawn an invitation to a teenager, who burnt the Australian flag, to take part in next year's Anzac Day parade. The back-flip follows threats of violence against the 17-year-old and calls for veterans to boycott the parade. A small plane, piloted by a US baseball star, has crashed into a high-rise apartment building in New York killing him and an instructor and triggering memories of the September 11 attacks five years ago. And more on that security scare in New York. At least one Australian family was feared trapped in the building but they are safe. There was confusion and fear as flames and smoke once again poured from a New York skyscraper. I was so scared. Let me tell you I was so scared, because I thought it was another terrorist attack. I thought maybe it was some sort of bomb that had gone off or some sort of explosion and in this day and age you can only think of the worst. Authorities now know it was a fixed-wing plane that slammed into the 20th floor of the 50-storey luxury apartment tower on Manhattan's wealthy Upper East Side. Everybody started running and when I looked up saw the small plane crashing into the building. Half of whatever it was crashed into the building and landed onto the sidewalk. On board, New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle and a flight instructor. Both men died. Their bodies found still strapped to their seats in the street below. The plane's engine on the 20th floor. Lidle, 34, had only had his pilot's licence for a year.

It's not clear who was at the controls when it crashed. It appears to be at this point, again, based upon the evidence, that we're aware of a very tragic aviation incident. When the plane hit there were fears it may have been a terror attack. There were reports US fighter jets were scrambled to secure air space above major cities including New York and Washington DC. Everything that we planned to handle an emergency like this was carried out to the book exactly the ways that we had wanted to go. Almost 200 firefighters ran into the burning building to evacuate residents who were trapped by the flames and smoke. Two firefighters were injured, but emergency crews say

it is a miracle no-one on the ground was hit by the falling debris. Bad news for mortgage holders this morning with the new head of the Reserve Bank hinting interest rates will continue to rise. He says if inflation remains high the central bank will have no choice but to act. It's the first time the new Governor of the Reserve Bank has spoken publicly and Glenn Stevens admits the current economic climate is something of a puzzle. He says the country's record low jobless rate, high inflation and slow economic growth are all confusing and mean managing the economy can be a trying task. One thing he is sure about is interest rates and he's convinced they'll keep climbing. It doesn't make much sense for me to say more than that. That's probably pretty clear. The new Governor says the proof will be in the next inflation reading due out in two weeks. If it's again outside the RBA's comfort zone of between 2% and 3%, he says rates will again need to move. Some months ago I think we were saying it's still more likely that the rates will rise than fall and in the period we can foresee that's still the case. The comments come despite a weak housing finance reading yesterday which prompted some economists to predict rates will stay on hold until the end of the year. But rising prices in the wake of record-high fuel costs mean there's every chance we'll see another strong inflation result at the end of the month. Matthew Taylor, Ten News. Oil prices have fallen to their lowest level this year. Since July, the cost of crude oil has plunged by more than US$20. In other finance news - the Australian share market is weaker today.

The RSL has done a backflip on its plans to let a Sydney teenager who burnt the Aussie flag during last year's Cronulla race riots carry the national symbol at next year's Anzac Day parade. Joining me live from Sydney to discuss the change of heart is RSL State president Don Rowe.

While the Aussies were frustrated they didn't score more goals

against the understrength Bahrain team, it was quality not quantity. COMMENTATOR: Oh wonderful strike, Marco Bresciano! 2-nil Australia. Marco Bresciano's stunning 24th minute goal, the highlight of the match. It was something special. I don't think you train for those kind of things. Some things, you know, sometimes it comes off and tonight I was lucky enough that if came off for me. Earlier, John Aloisi opened the scoring. The result secured the Socceroos top spot in their group ahead of the Asian Cup finals. To qualify as the top seed in this group is great. It's nice to have the family and give them a little wave before the game. It was good. It was vital to top the group because that's the expectation to top the group. The victory also helped stand-in Aussie coach Graham Arnold push his own claims for the national coaching job. All I've tried to do, if anything, is strengthen my claims if they want to go that way. As I've said, I think I've proven over the games that I've been in charge that I can handle that if need be. Trent Higgs, Ten News.

To AFL and St Kilda's new coach, Ross Lyon, has had to knuckle down to work immediately with just one day of trade week remaining. The former Sydney Swans assistant coach was yesterday appointed by the Saints for three years. St Kilda's new man in charge is doing a crash course on his new club's list, completely at ease by the challenge presented by the often hostile coaching environment. I've done an exceptional apprenticeship with some great clubs and I'm ready to go. I'm confident, once I was presented with the opportunity, I was confident that I'd be in the mix and I'd be a strong contender. He has firm ideas on where the Saints need to improve and has a day and a bit left of the trade period to find them. I'd like to get another ruckman, another 200-plus hit-out ruckman. You're always looking for more numbers to go through the midfield and forward pressure is an area I'd like to add to as well.

Lyon beat his Sydney colleague for the Saints job. Longmire is now being courted by Geelong to become Mark Thompson's right-hand man and has also been offered a bumped-up role at the Swans as the number two to Paul Roos. A number of negotiating stand-offs are holding up player trades. Chris Tarrant wants to become a West Coast Eagle,

but the Magpies and the Eagles can't agree on a suitable player to add to pick 16 to get the deal done. Ready to pounce is Fremantle which has the better offer on the table for Collingwood but need to convince Tarrant.

at a children's awards ceremony in Sydney. The 8-year-old honouring a promise to her late father Steve to attend the function. Bindi couldn't wipe the smile off her face, signing autographs and meeting her favourite stars, just as her dad would have wanted. It's wonderful to have a focus on a special night and I know Steve would have been proud. I'm talking for Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award. REPORTER: And you're going to be presenting an award. Yes. How do you do that in front of all those people? Oh, um, it's pretty easy, it's kinda hard and kinda exciting but, yeah.

Bindi told organisers just last week that, despite the tragedy of losing her father, she wanted to fulfil his promise and present the top award. Just as she did at her father's memorial, Bindi stole the show again. Isn't this great?

I'm the smallest presenter but I get to give the biggest award. With mum by her side, the pair then presented the Save Aussie Award, going to the nation's favourite Australian, as voted by the kids.
